St. Vincent at Radio City in 2008 (more by Eric M. Townsend)
St Vincent

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

St. Vincent, Holly Herndon @ Terminal 5
St. Vincent's new album continues to hone the formula she's been perfecting over the past few years, and it's some of her most accessible stuff to date. This is her biggest NYC show yet (sold out), and if you're going, it's worth catching the experimental sounds of Holly Herndon too.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Disappears @ Bowery Ballroom
Fresh off his strongest solo album in some time, Malkmus brings his arch wordplay and occasionally jammy indie rock to NYC for two sold-out shows. If you're going tonight, don't miss Chicago's krauty, punky Disappears.

Touche Amore, mewithoutYou, Seahaven, Caravels @ Le Poisson Rouge
This is a stacked show, co-headlined by post-hardcore rippers Touche Amore, whose most recent LP, Is Survived By, was one of our favorite albums of 2013, and longer-running shapeshifters mewithoutYou who have done post-hardcore, art rock, indie folk and more in their decade+ career. If you're going, be sure to get there early for Caravels, who are a very promising newer band if you're into Touche's style of post-harcore. They're on early, 7:30 PM.

Torche, Sannhet, Vulture Shit @ Saint Vitus
Torche are as powerful as any good sludge band around these days, and with songs you can really sing along to and sugary riffs that don't leave your head, they're easily one of the most addictive too. And they rip live, so this sold out show should be a great one. Good local support from post-black metal specialists Sannhet and guitar-less punks Vulture Shit.

Saul Williams, Mivos Quartet @ Merkin Concert Hall (Ecstatic Music Fest)
For tonight's installment of the Ecstatic Music Festival, spoken word artist Saul Williams is joined by local string quartet Mivos Quartet, for what should surely be an interesting evening of colliding genres.

Comeback Kid, Backtrack, Xibalba, To the Wind, Downpresser @ Santos Party House
Canadian hardcore band Comeback Kid return to NYC tonight, and they've brought along some solid support including the Madball/Obituary worshippers Xibalba.

Steve Earle @ City Winery
Having worked inside and outside the music industry, country survivor, protest singer and occasional actor Steve Earle plays one more City Winery show tonight, this one is all-request and all sold out..

Neighbors, Incan Abraham, Cultfever, Cold Fronts @ Baby's All Right
LA-via-NY indie pop band Incan Abraham have been putting out EPs and singles for a few years now, and they're set to release their debut full length, Tolerance, on April 8 via White Iris. Tonight's also a record preview for Neighbors' new LP, Failure. Both bands skew towards widescreen, anthemic pop.

Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers, Larkin Grimm, Gretchen Lohse @ Trans Pecos
An intense performer, Shilpa Ray doesn't let you just idly watch her. Not that you could. She's also likely the most aggressive harmonium player you've ever seen. Her latest EP, It's All Self Fellatio, came out last year on Nick Cave's Bad Seed Ltd. label.

Les Claypool's Duo de Twang @ McKittrick Hotel
Les Claypool and pal Bryan Kehoe rework Primus and Frog Brigade songs in a bluegrass/skiffle motif. This is Duo de Twang's first of two sold-out McKittrick shows.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's playing tonight, but you can check Max's Twitter.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

you think she has grey hair down there? this is a serious question.

I would lay flat on my back and let Annie Clark squat over my head and fart in my face.

Do people here actually like St. Vincent? I tried, kind of like I tried with Kanye, and I find it to be pretentious and not that interesting, like Kanye.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 10:31 AM

I might've wanted to see Torche if my interest hadn't waned over the years and they were playing a far less cramed performing space than St. Vitus. I understand it's the new popular place to get anyone who plays metal to be, but I don't feel like have to constantly put myself at risk now in order to see these bands.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 11:36 AM

Why are you putting yourself at risk going to St. Vitus?

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 11:50 AM

11:36 - You are a hopeless wimp and don't deserve to see any heavier bands.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 11:52 AM

It's not the St Vitus is dangerous per se, but rather that the St Vitus clientele are a disgusting sort, covered in syphilitic sores, always covered in sweat and stink (like pizza and BO), and grabbing your crotch at random moments (never figured that one out). Does the building cause this abhorrent behavior, or should you just avoid these fine specimens?

My band Assfuckshitpiss will be playing SVGH early show tonight. You all should pop in.

Annie Clark is the most talented female in music today. By a mile. New album and current tour will be highlights of the year.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 2:28 PM

^Apparently your knowledge of females working in music today is extremely small

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 2:34 PM

Something tells me that 2:34 is a female working in music today, which makes her comment either a ZING or obscenely egotistical.

Damn! I just dropped my pita triangle.

^Apparently not as much an idiot as you considering 2:38 was speaking to 2:34 and not you at 2:28.

Read much.

And here is your simple answer to your question about name a few more. "Anyone other than Annie Clark"

Seriously you are a clueless stunblebum. Go away

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 2:54 PM

2:47 should probably learn how to read at some point. 2:38 did not even mention him, unless he is one of those lonely crazy souls that argues with themselves. Either way, kind of a tool! So funny!

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:01 PM

High five, 2:54. I thought I read it wrong, so it took me a re-read to understand. Some folk just had mean daddies I suppose.

Posted by 3:01 | February 26, 2014 3:05 PM

Damn! I picked up my pita triangle off the floor, and there was a long hair stuck to it.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:06 PM

254 Exactly. You can't name anyone. It's cool if you don't like her but she will be huge by years end, for good reason. I'll be at the sold out show tonight and you will probably be home in your mom's basement beating off. All good.

WTF is a "stunblebum"?

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:09 PM

^Again, you are a myopic moron who has very little knowledge of females working in music today. Stamp your feet and make all the pronouncements and lame tries at a crack but nothing will change that initial fact.

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:11 PM

LOL what do you expect from A National fan? We can take solace in the fact that St Vincent will never be Arctic Monkeys good.

311 I beg to differ. I am quite well versed and keep up on all kinds of music. Probably more than most people that post on here. Ha ha, you can't even name one female. Stamp my feet? How exactly does one do that?

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:16 PM

314 I asked WTF is a "stunblebum" with an "n" stupid!

313 The National (boring)& The Arctic Monkeys (redundant), who I've seen twice. both suck. Neither and has any originality whatsoever.

"314 I asked WTF is a "stunblebum" with an "n" stupid!"


So basically you were trying a lame snark crack over a typing error?

Yes you are indeed stupid and you can add unimaginative and not very clever to your resume as well

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:28 PM

3:16 and all the other times you commented,

Not that guy who was ragging on you although he is correct.

Just off the top of my head here are a few names of women in music today with far more talent than Annie Clark. Talent being measured in various forms and guises and of course not all to my liking but here you go

Adele
Carrie Underwood
Katy Perry
Taylor Swift
Diana Krall
Joni Mitchell (yes she is still working in music today)
Alicia Keys
Beyonce
Rosanne Cash
to just name a quick few. They are all either better singers, writers, performers, sell more tickets, entertainers in one or some way or another

Also you never heard the phrase stamp your feet? You really are not that smart are ya?

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2014 3:38 PM

3:38 is psyched, next year he starts getting the AARP discounts!

Joni Mitchell lol

309 here.
Adele
Carrie Underwood
Katy Perry
Taylor Swift
Alicia Keys
Beyonce
You have got to be kidding! Are they even musicians? They put out bland, boring commercial junk. ALL of them. At least Diana Krall, Joni Mitchell & Rosanne Cash are real talents.
I should have said current, meaning newer female musicians in pop/rock. I did not mean artists that have been around for years. If that was the case off the top of my head:
PJ Harvey
Neko Case
Bjork
Lucinda Williams
Marisa Monte
Shelby Lynne
Cindy Blackman
Julieta Venegas
If all you can do is sing, you don't belong on this list.

There are basically 2 types of people who post on BV: Those who have something intelligent to say and then the losers who just put down the artists and anyone who likes them, calls people childish names and makes stupid jokes. If you don't like a band and want to mock those who do, at least tell us what you think we should be listening to so we can laugh at you!
